Editor's Overview

As small SUVs go, the 2013 Jeep Compass has quite a bit of ground to make up. Already behind the competition when it debuted in 2007, the current Compass shows vast improvement since then, but newer competitors litter the landscape this year, making it all the more difficult for the Compass to compete.

Impressive, smooth and quiet!

My 2013 Jeep compass has been very reliable! Great fuel economy. The cvt transmission is very sensitive to heat so be careful not to speed on hot summer days. The heat and air conditioning works very well. The seats are comfortable. There is a bad blind spot in the rear. It's quiet and rides smooth. The speakers are not the best but they so their job.

Random thoughts and comments on my Jeep compass 2013.

Gas mileage is amazing!! Though I have been having problem with my back brake pedals. I have taken it to many different places to get it fixed and they still squeak. Overall it is a great car and I think everyone should have one. Also the color ranges are great. If you have kids the backseat is not very big and cannot fit car seats very well.

Jeep compass satisfies. This is an easy handling SUV; is very roomy, comfortable.

My compass is roomy and gives a comfortable ride. You can switch to straight drive if you like. The rear seats fold down to give more cargo room. It has CD player (6-discs), ac, electric operable side windows, Audio jack, sport wheels. The only "problem" I have noticed is the ability to accelerate when merging onto an interstate.

Safety Recalls (1)

Seat Belts, Air Bags Sep 15, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 15, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V668000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Chrysler 200, 2010 Chrysler Sebring, 2010-2012 Dodge Caliber and 2010-2014 Jeep Patriot, Compass and Dodge Avenger vehicles. The Occupant Restraint Control (OCR) module may short circuit, preventing the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and side air bags from deploying in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
If the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and side air bags are disabled, there is an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants in the event of a vehicle crash that necessitates deployment of these safety systems.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the OCR, free of charge. Interim letters informing owners that parts are not available yet were mailed on October 26, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available in June 2017. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S61.
